Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Psychedelic question (slightly Dead-related)

So I'm cruising this article in yesterday's NYT, and this line got me curious. Really interesting article if you're interested in Brazilian music btw.;_r=0

The line:

"During carnaval, the four-man MicroTrio played psychedelic-tinged tropicália songs from a pickup truck hung with a few amplifiers".

So, what is psychedelic music anyway? See? - the Dead connection. Can anyone chime in their ideas about what makes music psychedelic? Did the Dead always do psychedelic music or did that stop when the 70s came around? Psychedelic-tinged? What the heck does that mean?

music that is enjoyed while tripping - hard. Not just lightly buzzed, but face dripping, reality crashing in high. Only the GD could really hold my attention in that state of they invaded my mind when it was in that state.

After my first "experience" with psychedelics my music collection took a 180 degree turn-around. Gone was the jerky boy pussy chasing jock rock garbage of the 70's. Country Joe and the Fish and Jefferson Airplane and The GD took over my collection. Out was Led Zep and Journey and Boston and Cheap Trick and BOC etc. Brainless angry misogynist schlock rock was just not doing it Ted Nugent. I always did consider his music as Dumb-ass music - to quote Red. People to whom a big hit of LSD was terrifying as they had so little to hold onto as it was, and to have it ripped away from them would be too much for them to handle....
